Philip Derf

Philip Derf was a student in our nursing program at SF State from 1990-1994 who was known as an extraordinary asset to his fellow classmates. His commitment to public service touched many of the faculty and students. Sadly, he passed away before completing the program. In his memory, it has become a tradition SF State School of Nursing that each graduating class chooses one classmate from amongst its ranks to receive the honorary award aptly titled the Philip Derf Award. This semester, the recipients of Spring 2019 Philip Derf Service Award are Nicholas Elizabeth Faby, BSN, and Nicholas Bonnin, SF State/Sequoia BSN. Larry Vitale presented the award during the Pinning Ceremony on May 17th, at McKenna Theatre.

Please join us in congratulating Nicholas Faby and Nicholas Bonnin!
